It appears that a head injury and subsequent ongoing treatment has scrambled my noodle more than i realise.. My balance is off, my memory is gone and my ability to express myself properly and consistently is non existent.... Boat for sale. (Maybe...Maybe not..who knows... when should an owner give up?). 
FTW.

How long ago did this happen. Assuming it's not a financial burden, I wouldn't make any decisions about selling a boat for at least a year after a brain trauma.

^this. A relative of mine needed more than one year, but she’s pretty ok now.

Buy an ad!

 

But seriously, keep the boat for a while, you might bounce back and then you’ll have to convince the wife that you are well enough to buy a boat.

How old are you?

Younger heals faster, and can "re-route" easier around damaged areas.

Dark quiet places help.

Yep my sister improved her condition over several years, there is hope, and you'll also develop work arounds esp on the memory front. My sis is now an avid note taker, and it works to jog the memory.

I'm there with ya Mr. Fixin. When I fell and blew out my back, I also had a severe concussion.  Falling 25ft to a hard surface hurts. Losing memory sucks. Recalling some bits of the past and some short term is tough.

I'd love to sell also.

Never give up !  Suffered a stoke 14 months ago. Was told all my recovery would be done in 12 months. They were wrong.  Every day is different along my recovery route.  I notice little improvements continuously, each and every day. Quite amazing really.

Those dastardly wives and their fiendish plans to get rich quick by trapping hapless men in marriage for several decades. Can't trust 'em, I tell ya!

On our first sail in Seattle after we brought Amati up from Portland (where we just had her built) had a bizarre accident coming in to the dock, 5 hours in shoulder surgery, was told I’d never do a lot of things again (and an ex all American backstroker had in truth swum his last). But I assiduously did my PT and clawed my way back to sailing.  Took a year.  Other terrible adventures got in the way of sailing, and most of the other things,  but if you really love your boat, keep her if you can.  The waiting is the hardest part, but that moment you get back out there is sweet.   Good luck!

One more voice saying, "Hang in there." My wife had a serious Traumatic Brain Injury 20 years ago. She had terrible brain fog, no balance, slept a lot. Lots of two steps forward, one step back. Or sometimes, three steps to the side. Had to write everything down, or she'd forget. Took a couple of years (and a sense of humour), but she got through it. She found the book "The Brain That Changes Itself" by Norman Doidge to be a big help.

Afterwards, everyone with a TBI came around to find out if what they were going through was "normal."
